The 3 Cherubeers, a family affair, form a small hamlet in rolling farmland at 500 ft at the top of a SW facing valley. Despite the exposed location and stony acid clay soil, the gardens provide a wealth of colour right through the season. Cherubeer: cottage garden set around a C15 thatched house (not open). Ponds, paths, and steps filled with colourful perennials and herbs set off by mature shrubs and trees. Higher Cherubeer: 1-acre country garden with gravelled courtyard, raised beds and alpine house, large herbaceous border, shady woodland beds with over 200 varieties of snowdrops, colourful collection of basketry willows, vegetable garden and National Collection of hardy cyclamen. Middle Cherubeer: colourful small garden. 3 separate areas with bog garden, pond and massed herbaceous perennials interlinked with paths.
